Khau sey recipe


Khau Sey is a very famous pakistani dish , in which mutton thick gravy is served with boiled spagethi and thick curd gravy ( kadhi ) topped with some fried and crispy condiments.




Khau sey takes me to a long back nostalgic memory lane in which my sis in law's mom use to send us this delicious  khau sey when ever she could. In fact when the first time she had sent , i was really floored with the authentic taste of it , 20 years back. There are many recipes of Khau sey , but this one is the best and an authentic one.
